Keeping Up fans have watched the reality TV pair’s rollercoaster relationship unfold in the same way they experienced the highs and lows of The Vampire Diaries’ Elena and Damon or The Office’s Jim and Pam. Although we all know Scott and Kourtney are real people, it’s easy for their love story to end up somewhere between real-life and fiction.

Although the oldest Kardashian sister has told her friends and siblings as much, they’re still fielding text messages from Lord Disick about a birthday dinner.
By the end of "Time to Dash" the parents of three finally agree they shouldn’t do everything together because it’s making both of them unhappy.
